Paper Abstract

The International ATOVS Processing Package (IAPP) is under development at the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison. The IAPP will be available to world wide users for processing real time ATOVS data. The retrieval algorithm of the IAPP is described with specific reference to retrieval of atmospheric temperature profile, moisture profile, total ozone, surface skin temperature, and microwave surface emissivity. Nine adjacent HIRS/3 spot observations together with the AMSU footprint remapped to the HIRS/3 resolution, are used to retrieve one atmospheric temperature profile and the other parameters within that domain. The algorithm is tested using simulated ATOVS data for both clear and cloudy sky conditions. Results demonstrate the potential use of IAPP for processing the real time ATOVS data.
